After closing more than half their stores and making you sign up for Plus to get free shipping (no matter how much you spend), Sam’s has to give away memberships.

Matt
Matt

They didn’t close half their stores. Chill out.

Celia
Celia

Well, we had 20 locations in my state and 7 were closed in 2018 so that was a lot. Illinois must have gotten the worse of it, other than Washington where they pulled out entirely. That didn’t bother me as much as losing the Business membership and adding shipping costs.

I like Sam’s, they have several items I can’t get at Costco. But changes like that make it harder to justify actually paying for a membership. Luckily, they give away memberships like this.

7/20=about 35%

They closed roughly 10% of their stores in 2018. I have a good friend who is a hardcore exaggerator so I have to laugh when I see this personality type out and about.

Celia
Celia

Yes, I own that overstatement. We must of gotten hit with more than most of the country in Illinois but not half, 35% as you pointed out. I used to have on right down the road and another 15 minutes away. Sadly both closed and the nearest is 30 minutes. I won’t pay for a membership there, I like Sam’s, but an hour driving is only worth a few times a year.

Ferris

Agreed, especially when you pay as much taxes as you do and your state is one recession and stock market crash from bankruptcy.

Celia

You’re giving us too much credit. It’s one recession OR stock market crash… 🙂

I did the Reddit steps linked above in the post. Got 2 x $20 and $10 gift cards in my order history and got $10 from Dosh and $10 from Rakuten plus $90 Instant Savings, so it’s like Sam’s is paying me for this year! Make sure not to use the long link with all the coupons combined listed in the comments. I tried that twice and got nothing.

Does anyone see a way you can stack the AMEX offer to this? samsclub.com/joinamex will not allow for any promotional codes

Celia

I successfully stacked 3 offers in November. Sent a referral, opened that link. New tab with the amex link, and the final tab with the sam’s offer where I filled out the info. Got $10 for the referee, several weeks for the Amex offer but it paid out without calling, and the $20 gift card/freebies from Sam’s.

Lily
Lily

How long did they email you the $20 gift card? I signed up for the membership online a week ago and have not received the giftcard.

Celia
Celia

Should have it by now, 7 days max I think. I had to chat with them to get it and they sent it to me but it turned out I had it all along, it got caught up in my sp*m filter. The one chat sent me was the same one.

Lily
Lily

Celia i just called and sent them the screenshot of my application which has the promotion on the top. If i don’t receive the gc in next 2 days i will just cancel the membership then i can do this offer, which is much better. Lol

You don’t have to use Amex link — you just pay directly with Amex card

Unfortunately I just got a membership 5 days before this, stacking the Amex deal with a $20 gift card emailed to me, making it “only” free. I can confirm that purchasing a new membership under a different link than the Amex one still works. The Amex offer credited my account after 5 days. My statement had 2 charges, one for “Samsclub.com membership” and a separate charge for the sales tax.

This offer isn’t quite as good as a straight up gift card(which can be used at wal-mart, more useful for me), but for $25 more that’s not bad. Sam’s is now a trip once every few weeks for a couple specific things, 90% of my shopping is done at Costco. My club turned the old, large, customer service desk into in-club pickup, and the customer service is now a large square desk with one associate at an iPad station and 3 iPads with self-service options. Stark contrast to Costco where the front desk is a large operation and price adjustments of even $3 are done via a written log, computer transaction, and manager key override.

last time i did an sam’s club deal amex wouldn’t honor the credit because i didn’t sign up through their link.

I came to ask this. Any chance it won’t stack since they’re two different links? I don’t see a spot for the promo code in the /JoinAMEX link

Novacat05
Novacat05

There is no offer code with the amex link, it’s contained within the web page address it takes you to.

I just signed up 5 days ago with a different link for a $20 gift card upon joining. Same looking page just different offer and tags in the web page address. The Amex offer went through just fine.

Does anyone know what this means? Not a Sam’s member and don’t know how it works.
“$45 offer* is an Instant Savings** offer and loads directly onto your membership card within 72 hours of joining.”

djd5202

It’s a discount that is applied at checkout. (On your future purchase)

foodie

Does it have many restrictions like $100 off $45, or is it easy to use like cash?

Sean
Sean

items with individual Instant Savings** offers do not qualify for the $45 offer*. Other restrictions apply. Not sure if anything worth to buy with the $45

Can the $45 loaded to the membership card be used at Sam’s Club gas stations?

Best guess: Have to convert $45 credit to physical GC to use at the pump.

Hey William Charles there is another Amex offer: Spend $30+ at samsclub.com, get $15 back. I don’t have the $25 offer but do have the one I mentioned.

Celia
Celia

memberships are coded differently. The $15 back on $30 is for shopping.

say what? what steps did you do?

James

so it does not work? are you certain have you check spam folder

Jason
Jason

T&Cs say the credit may take 72 hours. I tried a GC purchase immediately after signing up (getting a fraud alert from Amex that I need to clear in the process) but didn’t see the check-out credit. Waiting for the weekend. Not so easy to spend just over $45 here so probably going to burn a dollar or two on a usable GC and hope the Amex stack works using DoC’s link (all hail DoC).

Celia
Celia

Jason Try something else. Won’t show up with gift cards:

Items purchased with individual Instant Savings offers are not eligible for this $45 offer. Purchases of alcoholic beverages, tobacco, milk, fuel, pharmacy, gift cards, memberships or shipping costs are not included in this offer.

Clarence Weatherspoon

last time (in February, 2019) it worked for me using the $45 on e-gift cards.. I bought Nintendo e-shop e-gift cards with the $45 credit from the Sam’s Club web site. Hope it’s still the same? I was planning to do the same thing again.

Jason
Jason

Celia you are correct (and thanks), adding a bunch of cat litter does trigger the check-out credit that the gift card was not. I was trying an Applebee’s GC. Shame that shipping costs are so high on anything I can use.

Jason
Jason

And without the Amex credit stack (waiting for that to show up) I think it is hard to break even on this offer if shipping is involved.

Ash
Ash

Jason do u not have a Sam’s club closeby ? Why shipping?

Jason

Good point Ash , but no, I don’t

joe

Didn’t get it too. Not too worried though can just chat the reps and get it

Ash
Ash

joe are u talking about the $25 amex credit ?
Also, did u try to stack other offer of the $20 GC ?

Joe
Joe

Yes and yes. Already got $20 gc so far so waiting on $45 code and amex

Ash
Ash

joe so u got the $20 GC immediately? Heard it takes few days ?
Besides, $45 credit isnt instant ? Did u buy gc ?

joe
joe

Not sure. Followed the reddit steps and got 1 $20 gc within an hr and rokuten registered, should still have another $20 and $10 coming, you should see it in your purchase history if it stacks correctly. Chatted Sam’s about the $45 and was told it’d take 3 days

Clarence Weatherspoon
Clarence Weatherspoon

do you have a link to the steps posted on reddit?

Ron
Ron

What do you plan to tell the chat rep? Referral and this offer is not supposed to stack officially. Last time I remember that agent asked which offer did you sign up with ? They can easily find out that you already received the referral GC and deny the $45!

Clarence Weatherspoon
Clarence Weatherspoon

you can tell them you found the 4x gift card + $45 “super promo” on Doctor of Credit.

Ron
Ron

Are you being sarcastic?

Clarence Weatherspoon
Clarence Weatherspoon

I did this offer in the past. It may be different now that AmEx needs you to use a certain link. But it worked out well last time. Got the $45 loaded and used the $45 to buy Nintendo eshop gift cards. and got all of the other cash back. Not sure if things are different now with the deal?

Ron
Ron

Can one use the $45 Samsclub credit loaded onto the account spread across multiple less than $45 orders (as there is a 79day period within which it needs to be used up) or does it need to be used in one shot ?

My membership is good through April and I am on the fence if I want to sign up again which essentially means wasting 3 months of membership

Anyone on the same boat ?

Celia
Celia

One purchase, you would have 60 days to use it per the terms.

Given that this is essentially a free membership, your really not losing three months. Plus, If you’re stacking with Amex, that deal ends in two days.

Randall
Randall

Also here is proof that it all stacked and that the $10 gift card actually posted to my account in orders since I know some wouldn’t believe without a pic. I sent myself the coupon to *the email I signed up with* just to be safe in case there is a repeat of last year where the instant savings disappear for my protection.

Ash
Ash

Great. Thanks. But does this link gives u an option to enter the $45 savings code ?
And Amex $25 credit works for sure ? Randall

Randall
Randall

You don’t enter the $45 savings code as it is part of the link. *The promo code is just for in store signups*. The $45 instant savings can take up to 72 hours to become active. $25 amex credit works. The post itself says $25 amex credit will post (with or without the link) just have to wait for transaction to post to credit card. I used this link because it shows that I signed up with amex link (I took screenshot to show amex just in case). Just make sure you take pictures along the way showing all the offers and the last screen which shows you signed up and what they are sending you via email.

Ash
Ash

Randall – Purchased the membership using the link above but it only shows my membership under the order section. No GCs or anything?
